Verbruggen is still on the board at the UCI. He still received payments and had some influence along with McQuaid of accepting so-called donations to stop doping. Such a scam those two guys were running.

It goes beyond doping, who knows what these clowns have been up to. McQuaid was both on the UCI board and getting paid as an employee, which is forbidden by the UCI bylaws, when he was running for President. When it was challenged by Sylvia Schenk, among others, the UCI's ethics committee miraculously decided it was OK. Verbruggen has been running the UCI as his own personal fiefdom for 20 years.

The message from Nike: Dump Armstrong.
The message from IOC: see above.

The message from UCI: we are not dumping Armstrong because we are still hiding further "donations" Armstrong and others made to us.

The message from IOC: bye bye UCI Cycling. Have a good break and remember to watch all the great sports of the 2016 Olympics on TV.

‘Lance Armstrong is done commercially’: Dave Zirin reacts as Nike severs ties with the cyclist (Viewpoint, October 18, 2012)

Dave Zirin, sports editor for The Nation and host of “Edge of Sports Radio,” joins “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer to weigh in on the latest developments in the downhill trajectory of cyclist Lance Armstrong’s career. Zirin reflects on news that Armstrong has stepped down as chairman of his Livestrong cancer charity as well as Nike’s decision to terminate his contract.

“If Reagan was the Teflon president, then Nike is Teflon on steroids,” Zirin says. “Look at the Nike campus in Beaverton, Ore. Over the last year, they’ve had to change the name of the Lance Armstrong Fitness Center to just the Fitness Center. The Joe Paterno Child Care Center is now just the Child Care Center. I mean, I don’t know if they have the Michael Vick Kennels or the Tonya Harding Sportsmanship Clinic, but this is how Nike operates as an entity.”
